One Asia, One Future

As AVPN counts down to the 11th edition of the Annual Global Conference, which will take place against the backdrop of a world in great flux, it is imperative that we provide the social investment community with the most extensive opportunity yet, to learn, connect, and unite in action for Asia.

Join us for the first time in West Asia, in Abu Dhabi, UAE on 23 - 25 April 2024 in a gathering guided by the theme “One Asia, One Future”.

Overview

Uniting Asia for a sustainable future

While the world continues to face a multitude of uncertainties, Asia has proven resilient, standing up to the economic challenges brought on by the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic and the global economic slowdown. The region is home to some of the fastest growing economies and a significant contributor to global growth.

But in order to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030, we must reach beyond Asia’s economic growth story and harness its vast collective power. We must leverage our extraordinary cultural, socio-economic and historical diversity, the resilience and capacity of our communities, as well as our shared desire to achieve impact and secure the futures of this generation and the next. We must create One Asia, One Future.

In partnership with Abu Dhabi, the AVPN Global Conference 2024 will take place in April, under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Theyab bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of the International Humanitarian and Philanthropic Council. This reflects Abu Dhabi’s dedication to fostering global conversations on philanthropy, seamlessly aligning with AVPN’s passion for igniting impact across Asia.

Following last year’s record attendance of 1300 delegates from 44 countries, the AVPN Global Conference 2024 will bring together investors, philanthropists, corporations, policymakers, researchers, entrepreneurs and implementing organisations from around the world, working for impact within the Gulf Cooperation Countries and all territories eastward as far as Australia and New Zealand.

This will be the most inclusive conference to date, bridging north, south, east and west Asia through our platform for knowledge exchange and networking, alongside opportunities for forming wide-reaching alliances in the pursuit of collaborative action.

SPOTLIGHT ON UAE

A rich history of giving

Abu Dhabi, UAE, marks the first time AVPN will hold its annual Global Conference in West Asia, as we redouble our efforts to unite the social investment community, share insights, and accelerate impact. As with the rest of Asia, the UAE also has a long-held tradition of philanthropy where giving is done privately. With the emergence of new philanthropic organisations alongside a more focused approach to corporate social responsibility, there is now a growing interest in innovation, entrepreneurial principles and a desire for collaboration and partnership, particularly within Asia. As the deadline for achieving the SDGs looms, this moment calls for shared urgency in promoting strategic, structured practices to unlock capital for addressing Asia's critical issues.

VENUES

The AVPN Global Conference 2024
is set to be larger than ever

To host 1,500 delegates, the Conference will take place across two stunning locations in Abu Dhabi’s cultural hub, Saadiyat Island, which are about five minutes from each other.

St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi

St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort is located at the heart of Saadiyat Island, overlooking the crystal-clear blue waters of the Arabian Gulf. 9 kilometres of natural sandy beach and just minutes away from the Saadiyat Cultural District and Abu Dhabi downtown.

Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas

Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas is conveniently located on the Saadiyat Beach and is near the airport, city centre, prime banking and business districts, golf courses, local leisure attractions and minutes away from Saadiyat Cultural District; allowing our guests to visit iconic masterpieces such as Louvre Abu Dhabi, Zayed National Museum, and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi.

OVERARCHING THEMES

Uncovering key themes for a seamless and rich experience

Collaboration

Collaboration is at the heart of AVPN’s mission to unlock more capital towards impact. In the last decade, we have witnessed the transformative power of bringing unlikely allies together to address seemingly insurmountable challenges in health and nutrition, disaster recovery, gender, education, and climate through knowledge sharing, with aligned or pooled funds, multi-stakeholder partnerships, and other approaches.

Leadership

Taking action also requires Leadership. We seek to demonstrate leadership from within Asia in all its dimensions, showcasing changemakers who can give voice to homeground leadership models that can be exemplars on a regional and global level alongside those who work for change at scale, bringing to the fore a regional narrative that is inclusive, representative, and drives the global conversation.

Innovation

The third theme realises that Innovation is critical for addressing complex and interconnected challenges. Technology provides a launchpad for new solutions while enabling adaptation, resource optimisation, and scalability. But innovation isn’t confined to technology alone, but also plays a role in designing sustainable and effective approaches for channelling capital towards impact that leverage both private wealth and public resources.
